The Best unit had no defects in its construction such as loose threads and after multiple launderings it suffered no pilling or wear. The Best Heated Throw's six heat settings were found to provide consistent, even warmth across the full surface, while lesser models varied by 11.4° F across its quadrants. It was also deemed to be soft and comfortable due to its plush surface and thin wires that were virtually imperceptible. It has a long 13' AC cord and a ten-hour automatic shut-off. Machine washable. Grey or Navy Nordic. 62" L x 50" W. (5 lbs.)
